We use a simple fragmentation model to describe the statistical behavior of the Voronoi cell patterns generated by a homogeneous and isotropic set of points in 1D and in 2D. In particular, we are interested in the distribution of sizes of these Voronoi cells. Our model is completely defined by two probability distributions in 1D and again in 2D, the… (More)

Nanoscale confinement of adsorbed CO molecules in an anthraquinone network on Cu(111) with a pore size of ≈4 nm arranges the CO molecules in a shell structure that coincides with the distribution of substrate confined electronic states. Molecules occupy the states approximately in the sequence of rising electron energy. Despite the sixfold symmetry of the… (More)

In recent observations of Brownian motion of islands of adsorbed atoms and of vacancies with mean radius R, the cluster diffusion constant D c varies as R Ϫ1 and R Ϫ2. From an analytical continuum description of the cluster's steplike boundary, we find a single Langevin equation for the motion of the cluster boundary, rather than three special cases. From… (More)

Single-layer graphene (SLG) supported on SiO(2) shows anomalously large chemical reactivity compared to thicker graphene, with charge inhomogeneity-induced potential fluctuations or topographic corrugations proposed as the cause. Here we systematically probe the oxidative reactivity of graphene supported on substrates with different surface roughnesses and… (More)

For hexagonal nets, descriptive of ͕111͖ fcc surfaces, we derive from combinatoric arguments a simple, low-temperature formula for the orientation dependence of the surface step line tension and stiffness, as well as the leading correction, based on the Ising model with nearest-neighbor ͑NN͒ interactions. Our formula agrees well with experimental data for… (More)

We have investigated the step stiffness on Cu͑001͒ surfaces as a function of step orientation by two independent methods at several temperatures near 300 K. Both sets of data agree well and show a substantial dependence of the stiffness on the angle of orientation. With the exception of steps oriented along ͗110͘, the experimental stiffness is significantly… (More)

Spurred by recent theoretical predictions [Phys. Rev. E 69, 035102(R) (2004)10.1103/PhysRevE.69.035102; Surf. Sci. Lett. 598, L355 (2005)10.1016/j.susc.2005.09.023], we find experimentally using STM line scans that the fluctuations of the step bounding a facet exhibit scaling properties distinct from those of isolated steps or steps on vicinal surfaces. The… (More)

Using a van der Waals density functional ͑vdW-DF͒ ͓Phys. Rev. Lett. 92, 246401 ͑2004͔͒, we perform ab initio calculations for the adsorption energy of benzene ͑Bz͒ on Cu͑111͒ as a function of lateral position and height. We find that the vdW-DF inclusion of nonlocal correlations ͑responsible for dispersive interactions͒ changes the relative stability of… (More)

We study theoretically the equilibrium fluctuations of steps on vicinal surfaces. From an analytical continuum description of the step edge, we find a single Langevin equation governing the motion of an isolated step around its equilibrium position that includes attachment/detachment of atoms, diffusion over the terrace, diffusion along the edge, and… (More)

The decoration of hexagonal Ag/Ag(111) monolayer islands by chains of C60, observed via STM at 300 K, dramatically changes the nanocrystalline shape and fluctuations of the islands. We tune coverage so that a single chain of C60 fully decorates each Ag island boundary, forming a closed circular "necklace." We model the C60-induced rounding in terms of… (More)
